Cute Girl Practice Sketch

Just a little practice sketch I made for fun. I thought I could maybe start offering cute family portraits! I also made this fruit pattern the other day and wanted to use it on something - I would actually wear that dress! It seems that watermelon prints are super popular lately, I even saw a watermelon bumbag the other day. 

I hope you all have a good weekend!

Travel Posters: Italy

Thank you for your suggestions on my last post! I really like the idea of illustrating some of the Scandinavian countries and Ireland. Pinterest has become my best friend whilst researching all of these beautiful places. I've actually really been enjoying creating these as they are a little different from the usual illustrations I get to make and it's good practise for me!

Travel Posters: Japan

I've been looking for inspiration on Pinterest recently and I'm usually glued to the travel section! I'm not a particularly big traveller as I HATE flying and airports but there's so many awesome places I'd love to visit and seeing as I can't, I thought I'd illustrate them instead. I've seen lots of retro style travel posters around lately, but I hope to include some more unusual places that people might not have necessarily known about. Do you have any interesting suggestions that you'd like to see?

Etsy Finds: Chokers


Chokers seem to be super popular lately, and are actually one of the few 90's trends I really love (along with jellies of course!). I was browsing for affordable chokers a little while ago, and I came across this lovely Etsy shop which stocks a huge handmade range. I chose the pretty pearl one and when it arrived, the kind lady who runs the shop had even included a free necklace! A guy in Boots also complimented me on it so that's a good enough endorsement for me. What do you guys think? Are you a fan of chokers?
